Re: SVN Overwrite & .SVN size

Thanks Ryan!!!
That was a precise answer I was looking for though
none of my problems are solved so far.

About Issue 1:
Does any one know the status of the Summer Project. Is
there any progress on this front. Looking desperately
for one. My people dont just want to move to
Subversion as they do not have enough disk space!

About Issue 2:
I went through Vendor Braching. Its very convincing.
But again, the problem here is, the third party source
code is running into the size of 2 GB. Since we work
on multiple versions at the same time, it will consume
a lot of time downloading the third party software
version. Had only the over-write option been designed
into SVN...

Please help.

Thanks for the responses.
Regards
Keerti
